Origins Game Fair: Tournament Schedule

By Kat Metzen

Gama has come and gone. GenCon is months away, but Origins is right around the corner! Our 2014 Event Team is packing their decks and heading to Columbus, Ohio for Origins Game Fair 2014. at the Great Columbus Convention Center. The event will be held on June 11-15, and registration is open if you want to attend.

 

This year, the Cryptozoic Demo and Tournament Area will be located in the front row of the hall in Booth D201. Stop by and demo unreleased games, test your skills in our DC Comics: Deck-building and Adventure Time Card Wars Tournaments, pick up a couple games in the store, or just hang out with game designers Cory Young (2014 Mensa Select Gravwell) and John Kavolic (Origins Award nominated ROFL, Double Feature). The schedule for Cory and John will be announced this week. Want to volunteer at our booth? Head to our forums for the details on how to join our Champions Team.
